A Soviet scientific institute carries out a secret experiment on animals and humans in order to create a perfect being. The institute engages in sick and cruel research, drowning in vodka and sperm, with the complicity of the KGB. Until an extremist right-wing group sneaks into the laboratory to eradicate the pigsty...

This top-secret institute existed during the Soviet era between 1938 and 1968. Under the initiative of Ilya Khrzhanovskiy, it was recreated between 2009 and 2011. The film director brought together artists, mathematicians, philosophers, a film crew and interpreters who were confined there, just as was the case in the Soviet era. This experiment gave rise to DAU. Degeneration and a dozen other films already or about to be posted online on the experiment's exceptional site (www.dau.com).
